Publisher's Summary

Buried treasure, pirate accents, swashbuckling sea battles, tricorn hats, and walking the plank - did you know that none of those elements are true regarding real pirates from history?

In fact, there are plenty of other elements about real-life pirates that are simply fiction. But what about the real history of pirates - is it worth exploring, and why?

The history of the Golden Age of Piracy, the one that has shaped the modern conception of a pirate, is complex and long, with lots of information to cover. Until today, there has not been a tome discussing the key details of the Golden Age in a digestible, easy-to-understand format.

This audiobook will be your guide to the Golden Age of Piracy, and by listening to it, you will discover the following:

  • The original pirate bases and pirate routes
  • A brief history of piracy before the Golden Age
  • Stories of multiple prominent pirates, both male and female
  • Incredible tales of voyages across the Atlantic and Indian Oceans
  • The ins and outs of a pirate’s everyday life
  • Various myths and legends related to pirates that persist to this day
  • Different ways in which the law handled pirates at the time
  • How the pirates functioned both on land and at sea
  • How the presence of pirates at the time affected the law and the everyday lives of regular people
  • And much, much more

more interesting than most would think

yes, it touches on a few of the most notable pirates, but there are so many more that led interesting lives/careers. it's great to bring up many of the myths and misconceptions in order to dispel them.

I would interested in learning a bit more deeply on many of those spoken of in this book.
